      Being presented for sale this exquisite Period American Empire Crotch Mahogany LargeTall Post Bed circa 1830.  This stunning bed is executed in gorgeous crotched mahogany and measures a total height to the top of the four large posts of 92 inches ( 7 ft 8 inches), height to the top of the head-board is 56 inches, height of the foot-board and the side rails measure 23 inches.

   This grand bed has four heavy crotched mahogany column posts with turned finials at the tops, with ring turned sections above the heavy square corner blocks, with ring turned legs and the original casters intact on all four feet to allow for easier movement within your home. The rich crotched mahogany head-board offers a straight rolled crest-rail above two recessed panels of crotched mahogany. The outside measurements of the bed are 64 inches wide by a total length of 81 1/2 inches,and the inside mattress area measures 57 inches wide by 72 inches long and should accommodate a full size mattress set nicely but one should measure their mattress set to assure proper fit. The is a chip to one of the rings below a finial which I have shown a close up of and an age crack about 3 inches long in the veneer on one of the post...but neither detracts from the regal beauty of this lovely early bed, just normal marks of age and character. The total weight of this bed is approximately 180 lbs,this is a very heavy, well crafted 19th century bed that is very solid and tight, and would surely be the grand focal point in any bedroom!
